'Wanda's Visit' is a MUST - get this out on DVD
18 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Christopher Durang's contribution to this anthology series, 'Wanda's Visit' is a comic gem that really should be more widely seen. I taped it in its original run and virtually everyone I've shown it to screams with laughter. It really is hysterically funny. Swoosie Kurtz gives a wonderful performance as the ex-girlfriend from hell. Durang himself appears in a small cameo. Julie Haggarty and Jeff Daniels are equally strong. Although Durang subsequently adapted it for the stage, the original is a masterpiece of comic writing and acting. I really don't remember and didn't tape any of the other segments, but from the people involved and the descriptions, it seems like this would be a winner. Whoever owns the rights (PBS?) really should dig through the vaults and release this.
